20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill
20th Century Ghosts

pspsteve, March 17, 2011

A great collection of short stories. Joe Hill does magic with the pen. These stories span from the sublime to the humorous and supernatural. "Best New Horror" puts the reader into the shoes of an agent looking down the barrel of horror. "Pop Art", an unusual story of friendship, bullying, and humor. The characters throughout this collection are amazing. From childhood to old age, Hill pours on the fears, hopes, and dreams of all the characters and readers of his book. Great, great, great.

Swan Song by Robert McCammon
Swan Song

pspsteve, January 30, 2011

Robert Mccammon writes with a smooth pen. His artistry for words is magic. Swan Song takes you on a ride through a devastated America. You witness love and hate, man's inhumanity to man. How evil pervades even the most devout. But good has deeper roots. Mccammon characterization has you feeling the emotions of both sides. A fantastic read by a masterful raconteur.
